About This Item

Best in Class!

Hand-crafted by our SHAR Beijing Workshop then set-up our SHAR Ann Arbor Workshop, the Lamberti® Sonata has raised the bar for intermediate level violins. Our Carlo Lamberti® model LV11 provides exactly what a player expects from a high quality Chinese violin from SHAR: impressive performance, a beautiful finish, and an outstanding value. Set-up in the SHAR workshop with premium fittings and strings. 4/4 to 1/8 sizes.

"This violin will allow advancing small students to make rapid progress with tone development and fast passage. Its powerful and rich tone will delight and surprise a deserving student, especially one who has grown used to the limitations of their present violin."
- Charles Avsharian, Shar CEO

"Why do I love the Lamberti violins? Because they allow my students to have a bright, clear-sounding instrument that both projects and is very sweet to the ear. Parents will enjoy hearing their child practice all afternoon on this violin and so will the student."
- Rebecca Appert, Violinist, Teacher and Shar Violin Shop Specialist

Is there any way I can request a 1-piece back? My sister has this same violin, and we don't want to mix them up.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Mary, thanks for your question! Due to the variation of available inventory, we cannot guarantee you'll receive a 1-piece back. If you have other questions about this instrument, please feel free to contact us directly at 1-800-248-7427 and we'd be happy to help!

I purchased this just a few weeks ago. My violin teacher recommended that I have an extra set of strings. Can you recommend the strings for this violin. I would like to purchase some as well. Thanks, Betty Tullos

SHAR Answer:

Hi Betty, thanks for your question! We would suggest Vision strings by Thomastik-Infeld as a replacement. Click here to find the full set in your choice of size. If you would like any other suggestions, feel free to contact a sales representative at 1-800-248-7427.

Asked On: 09/20/2019

Hello, do your instruments come pre-stringed when delivered ?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Helen! All of our instruments should be fully set up and ready to play right out of the box. The instrument may just need to be tuned as it can fall out of tune in transit. Let us know if you have any other questions.
